Personally I have never understood the negative attitudes toward a well done, well fitting, glass car. I've seen some absolute beauties that I would love to have sitting in my garage. However, that doesn't alter the reality of the situation. Two comparable cars, same year, same engine, same mods, and the steel car is going to be worth more than the glass car.
I think the attitude toward glass cars is getting better but I don't believe it will ever be totally eliminated. However, in terms of your personal investment I wouldn't eliminate glass cars from your selection process. If you are going to buy and hold a well constructed car for 15 or 20 years it is still going to appreciate in value. Maybe not quite as much as a steel car, but you certainly aren't going to get hurt. And I can't see any reason you wouldn't enjoy owning and driving a glass car any less than a steel car. So in the end I believe it is much more important to purchase a car you personally find irresistible rather than making your decision based on steel vs. glass.
I've built and owned both and never found the issue to be particularly important to the enjoyment of the car.
Always learning...and sharing what I've learned.
